Eight More Random Facts About Me Meme

I was recently tagged by meeyauw with the Eight Random Facts About Me meme. I had this one before too (I've Been Tagged) so I worked up a sweat thinking of eight more random facts and finding something on YouTube that goes with them. Sort of.


1. I have a degree in Elementary Education but I've allowed my teaching license to lapse and moved on toward office work. (The first few seconds of this one are relevant. LOL.)


I had education-oriented positions up until my latest job....


2. I'm a debt collector. Not too many people say "wow, isn't that cool" when I tell them. Especially not those people that are themselves getting collection calls. And, since there are more people that are in debt than there are those of us that collect debt....




3. I still haven't had my hair cut since the last time I did this meme, but I was thinking about it because my sister-in-law and brother (the ones married in the chapel picture in this week's Photo Hunters) are coming in a m…

Lost Letters...

It looks like I'm not the only typist that is losing my letters. Of course, these days my keyboard is covered with dust. Things are finally getting back to normal. I'm not back to being able to get to my own computer yet, but within a few days I'll be able to get out the duster.

The Stone Spheres of Costa Rica

clipped from http://www.mondovista.com/balls.html
In the 1930's, the United Fruit Company was excavating the fertile, yet remote, farmlands of Costa Rica, near the Diquis Valley on the Pacific Ocean coast. United Fruit is the major importer of bananas and they became interested in this region of Costa Rica because of a blight that had killed many banana trees on the Caribbean coast. As workers dug and prepared the land for cultivation, they discovered many large stone spheres buried and impaled in the tropical soil. Since then, archaeologists have been perplexed by the stones. Thousands have now been found. Some are as small as four inches -- about the size of a baseball -- while others are a massive eight feet in diameter. Estimates of their age goes back some 1,600 years, yet no one can be sure how they were made, by whom, or why. "All of this has lead some researchers to speculate that the stone spheres were made by aliens, a lost civilization and even the people of Atlantis.…

I Caught i-Caught This Evening

I was gone for the weekend. I drove up to the Portland, Oregon area to bring my nephew home and visit. I didn't get to take much by way of pictures or videos because I transferred the batteries in my camera to the Gameboy Advance my brother gave to our nephew so he wouldn't be bored on the trip home. I didn't really get to travel around much online this weekend. I'll have to get online tomorrow.

I just stopped by because I wanted to save a few of the YouTube finds I saw on i-Caught this evening. They interviewed some people in videos that have gone viral. The bride in the Thriller Wedding Dance segment talked about how people must have a lot of time on their hands to have watched her video over 2,000,000 times combined. I love watching YouTube. My fascination with YouTube has nothing to do with having too much time on my hands. Sometimes it might feel that way when I get to surfing around watching old Barbie tv commercials, but really I don't "waste" my t…
